I think I'm just about ready to lock. Hard decisions!
My final budget could be stretched just barely to cover an unpainted Full Doomchilada, but I honestly have no idea where the hell I'd store it all and if I'm honest with myself, it would take me 5 years to get around to painting all of that. I hate painting bricks.

So, a nice big solid chunk painted for the kids to play with when we unpack, and a few of the more interesting things for me to paint over time. Enough unpainted Vaulted pieces to try an alternate paint scheme, I kinda want to try my hand at a full marble set or some catacombs.

Painted:
Dungeon Level 4 (Encounters 1-9)
1 x Elevation Box
1 x Double Doors set
1 x Ancient Pillars
2 x Cages

Unpainted:
Jade Shrine of Sysuul
1 x Temple Walls & Pillars
1 x Jade Ancient Pillars
Khri Colony
1 x Burrows Elevation
Lava Bridge part 2 - Infernal River
Dais of the Dead
2 x Large Curved Walls

1 x Water Terrain Tray multipack
1 x Acid Terrain Tray single

Magnetizing everything I can. Will have 2 of each big Terrain Tray flavor, figure that's a solid start. Gets me all the capstones & critters I really wanted, so glad there was a (reasonably) affordable way to get the Vermillion. I love that dude.

I can make anything in the DoD except Doomroller, but not all at once. Have to decide if I want to squeeze in a regular boulder & ramp into this somehow.

And Elevation Boxes... gotta get more...

I would add the Wall and pillars add-on but there is no room in the budget. The Hurricane damage was light. I need to take down a tree and property taxes are due. I hope the add on will be available retail for a while.

Bloody Hell that's a lot of Dungeon .......little bit jealous
Not that there is any room in the burrow for what I have ordered which did include Wall and pillars add-on for a cool looking ziggurat. ;)

Don't know if I like having the pledge manager unlockable. I just spend another $50 getting more cages and walls of force... had to restrain myself on more pillars.
I agree. I started thinking that maybe I need more elevation blocks...

Whelp, I placed my order. I went kinda light, after going NUTS with both Cities and Castles. One of the nice things about KS5 is that you can do some really fun stuff even with only a small fraction of what came out. With cities and castles, it was hard to shake the feeling that you needed at least 80% of what was listed to get much use out of anything. That wasn't entirely true -- but, to be fair, it wasn't entirely UNTRUE either. So I've taken advantage of the flexibility here. I'll get some now, and then more later.

So -- for now....

I started with just Dungeon Level I, and added the lever chamber (really want that pedestal piece! straight out of Raiders of the Lost Ark!) and the acid bath encounter (which my son is very excited about!). That gives me several interesting new rooms to start.

After that, I went for flavor. I grabbed the LED and magnet walls for classic dungeon pieces, so I can trick out my existing KS1 dungeon. I also grabbed LED and magnetic vaulted walls, so I have some flexibility with how I build the Dungeon of Doom rooms. Then I grabbed some epic stairs (coz they're epic), some cages (coz they're cages), and all the trapssss! Magnetic and floor traps because they look really fun.

Finally, I grabbed both paint variations of the temple antechamber and inner sanctum. I just couldn't decide, and that ate up my budget. Regular paint looks very Indiana Jones, and jade paint looks very eastern. Very cool. Passed on the Pit since it doesn't have walls. But I may still get at least one version of it. I also grabbed the regular Syssul himself. Too cool to pass up.

I still may add some figures and maybe a few other small things. But I'm holding off on the burrows for now. That's such a game changer, and I learned after getting sewers with cities and city pieces with castles that when a bunch of stuff in one theme comes, anything from a different theme is less tempting to use right away. I'll be so busy with DoD pieces, I won't have time for burrows initially anyway. I will get it in time, though. My son is super excited for that, too! Especially since we have a purple worm in our campaign...
